2008 Certificate: 15


Titanic stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet enter more emotionally troubled waters as Frank and April Wheeler, an outwardly perfect Fifties couple whose marriage is foundering on the rocks of boredom and resentment. Adapted from the acclaimed 1962 novel by Richard Yates, Brit director Sam Mendes' sobering picture of suburban stagnation covers similar ground to his Oscar-winning American Beauty. Co-stars Kathy Bates and the excellent Michael Shannon join the road to Awardsville.
